“just like Turkey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Went to this restaurant after reading the comments on tripadvisor and can only agree it was really worth it, even though it was far away!!!! We went to Istanbul in June and the food taste just like there if not better. Shared the mixed grill platter with different cuts of meat and chicken and it was so delicious with the charcoal flavors, couldn’t have enough of it. It was served with rice bread salad and yogurt sauce. The ambience of the restaurant felt very authentic just like the food. I can recommend visiting the place you won’t regret it and be hungry when you go there, portions are huge.

“Wow no wonder they have queue outside!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Have Lunch here with my Wife and Daughter on a Saturday afternoon.

Although a bit of a queue was forming we did manage to get seated pretty quickly.

This place is very busy but everything seems to be on the go and cooking all the time which results in very quick service - the tables around us changed twice during our meal - perhaps we are slow eaters or was it just that the mountain of food eventually defeated us.

You get a free large salad and also some yogurt/cucumber dip with freshly cooked homemade flatbread while you sort out your order. We had some houmous and a warm Aubergine dish to start - this we really did not need as the next course was absolutley massive.


Full Platter is a sharing plate supposedly for 2-3 people to share for £25.50
comprising of
Lamb Shish, Chicken Shish, Lamb Ribs 5pcs, Adana Shish, Chicken Wings 8pcs, Chicken Doner, and Lamb Doner. (all served with Rice, Bulgur and Salad)

I clipped the above off of their menu as I couldnt remember all of the thing on the plate.

It was all very tasty but we had to get them to put the rest in a doggy bag container - which my daughter had for her dinner the next day.

The whole meal including one glass of wine and two soft drinks cam to £37.00 for the three of us.

Fantastic value and quality - No wonder they are so busy.

Thinking of going to fix my Daughters curtains next week - good excuse for another visit??

“Great value, great food, but not unique...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is a great restaurant, it's great value, the food is fantastic the service is decent and it has a really good atmosphere! In that sense all the reviews are spot on.
However I must say that this part of Green lanes is lucky to be blessed with numerous other restaurants that tick most of the same boxes, so Gokyuzu Restaurant is not unique in that respect.
That is not take anything away from Gokyuzu Restaurant, its well worth a visit and comes highly recommended but if you can't get a table here, go to one of the others, they are just as good!

“Best Turkish kitchen in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

This wonderful restaurant! I advise you to try it. Good service but it always busy in evening, especially on Friday and weekends. Be aware and come earlier.
Each meals include free salad which very delicious. Moreover restaurant provide free Turkish tea and baklava when you finish your food.
The best place to go for more than 2 people.

“Can not find a better place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We often travel all the way from Kent to eat here. Food is always excellent as is the service. Good value too. Always busy and that just proves how good Gokyuzu really is.
